 7th bipartite pensioners
Dear Mr.Ghosh,

On the 13th of February 2014, the Supreme Court has dismissed the appeals by a few banks against High Court orders.Quote:Dear Friends,, This is with regard to SC judgement dated 13/02./2014
in Vijaya Banbk, Allahabad Bank and United Bank of India. These are
Civil Appeals by Banks against HC orders.
As the appeals have been dismissed in SC. Can somebody state the
implications of the verdict?
The judgement states " Sec. 29(5) of pension regulation will be
applicable for calculation/payment of pension and not Bi Partite
settlement/Joint note".
The judgement also states that as in the case of K Mohan das and
others, the IBA advised vide circular dated 17th August 2009 ths
benefit should be paid to all identically affected employees
of all banks with 9 % interest from date of HC order.
Can any body from vijaya bank or Allahabad bank please clarify?
Thanks.unquote. The SC has stated that the bipartite settlements cannot change pension regulations. If Mr.Ghosh can bring this before the Calcutta Court, it will be helpful. Also if we win a favourable judegement, the SC may not allow an appeal also.

 PENSIONERS~ RECURRING MEDICAL RMB OF Rs. 7000/=P.A
Sir, It is true that the REMB is like mediclaim but the same is restricted to Rs.7000.00 p.a for domiciliary treatment only.Actually, the senior /pensioners are used to spend more than that for various ailments and to claim for all these sundry expenses is a genuine problems. As the limit is defined and that too for domiciliary only, the payment of the amount on DECLARATION basis may ease out the problems of many a pensioners. Thanks for your response.
 
Comment: Dear Mr Mudi,

We agree with your sentiment and logic. We reiterate that your suggestion is worth serious consideration. Thanks for writing. Please continue to be in touch with us.

P C MUDI wrote at 17-02-2014 4:23 pm:

 PENSIONERS~ RECURRING MEDICAL RMB OF Rs. 7000/=P.A
Under the captioned scheme the pensioners who have joined the said scheme are entitled to get reimbursement of Rs.7000/=p.a on production of bills as and when such expenses incurred by the pensioners. The bills are to be supported by prescriptions/cash memos/bells &sundries to establish their claim of the amount . It is bit cumbersome on the shoulders of the SENIOR CITIZENS CUM PENSIONERS as they are to keep all such bills for accumulation of bills of Rs. 7000/= or less. Where as the award-staff those who are in service are getting the medical expenses amount on notional basis for the whole year at the start of the calender year. Why the same liberal approach is being not adhered to in case of the PENSIONERS as they at their prime age spent more than the defined amount on medical expenses without being HOSPITALIZED. The ISSUE under reference merits considerations at your end
 
Comment: Dear Mr Mudi,

You are right in voicing this expectation of the Bank paying a lumpsum of Rs 7000/- at the beginning of every financial year to all pensioners covered under REMBS, instead of following the laborious process of reimbursing bills.
But you must also appreciate that unlike the outlay of fixed amounts for the award staff, in case of pensioners under REMBS, the scheme is based on actuarial calculations and works like Mediclaim, where number of claims paid, is a major factor, even for domicilliary treatment.
Even then, your suggestion is worth a serious consideration.

Comment: Dear Swapan,

Retirees under VRS of 2001 were given REMBS facilities upto Rs 2 lacs and were not permitted enhancement upto Rs 7 lacs, when the scheme was enlarged later. Retirees under Exit Option of 2006 as also all those pensioners who had resigned, despite having put in 30 or more years of service, were denied REMBS facility totally.
Yes, you are absolutely right. It is a grave injustice. Our Association and Federation have been striving to bring about uniformity among all pensioners, in this regard. Let us hope for the best.

sabyasachi chattopadhyay, ex DGM. wrote at 05-02-2014 6:55 pm:

 no delivery by the pensioners' fedaration/association
I have received your bulletin no-1/8 dt nov/dec 2013 and I am totally disappointed as the pensioners' fedaration/association have not been able to deliver a single benefit to the pensioners. The bulletin only advises about the case at high court and some meetings at different places. I feel that the periodical meetings are necessary to avoid loneliness and to keep fit physically and mentally. The bulletin has reached my home at a time after the last date for submission of nomination papers papers. So the same faces will continue in the governing body inspite of their attaining much higher age and for no delivery over the years. This is most unfortunate. Even during our service life I saw most of such leaders were in the helm of affairs continuously in spite of no performance. You will agree that almost all the people enroll for the members after 60 years of age and if the leadership continues for a number of terms thereafter, we cannot expect much from them. So I am in favour of changing the bye-laws that nobody can be a governing body member after two terms; that means he cannot contest and you know how election is held by raising hands in the ADM. Therefore attending Federation meeting at different places of India with no delivery of benefits to the old members is construed as availing of erstwhile leave fare concession of the bank. Kindly think seriously in the matter. I don't blame you as the two serving unions are not able to deliver to the members upto the expectations as developments come up in newspapers. Trade unions are losing their barganing power in different industries and in turn losing the faith of the members/workers and there cannot be any exception for pensioners' associations. But change of faces in leadership at certain intervals making rooms for newly retired people specially who were not leaders os associations during service life otherwise 'aaisai chalta rohega'.
 
Comment: Dear Sabyasachi,

We would appreciate if you refer to yourself as not an ex DGM, but as a pensioner, like the rest of us. This is the difference between the pensioners' Association and the cadre based Associations that you have referred to in your message. Here all of us are equal, and our only identity is that we are pensioners.
We do not agree with your observations about the activities and achievements of our Association/Federation, or its leaders. It is because of years of painstaking efforts of such pensioners, that the Association and Federation has grown in stature. You may or may not be aware that it was because of the court case fought by our Federation that the erstwhile absurd pension ceilings of Rs 1000/Rs 600 were discontinued and Family Pension introduced in our bank. Since 1989, the Association and Federation has made remarkable efforts in improvement of medical benefits, settlement of anomalies and aberrations through structured meetings at Corporate Centre level, LHO level and even ZO level. Pensioners' meets are sponsored by the Bank management. Even Workshops for pensioners are sponsored by the Bank. We have been provided with office space and infrastructure everywhere. Yet, we are not a trade union which can compel the bank to yield to our demands through agitations and strikes. This is no mean achievement.
If you wish to associate yourself actively with our association, you are welcome to do so, as any voluntary effort by pensioners helps it to grow. Bringing about changes in the bye laws is also possible through amendment resolutions. For that too, active involvement is first needed.
It is surprising that you have not found anything commendable about the Association, not even this website which you have used to voice your views. Pensioners from all over the country have however appreciated our humble efforts and encouraged us. We urge upon you to come forward and help us to improve our functioning, instead of criticizing from a distance.

 Views regarding pension payment.
I need to inform you that all retirees should get equel status regarding pension payment.

For example:-

a)Existing basic must be 50% for all pensioners'.wef 1st Nov, 2007.

b)Pensioners'must get hike whenever new wage negotiation done.(As good as Central Govt.employees)

I think above 2(two) points must not ignore
then we are to loose our morality as well as intelligence as a whole.
 
Comment: Dear Shri Bhattacharjee,

Welcome to our website. You have correctly voiced two demands. The 50% pension for all, is the main relief sought in our case now pending at Delhi High Court Div Bench, the next date of hearing being 6th Feb, 2014. The second demand is one which is being voiced by pensioners in the entire banking industry. There are two other demands which are common to all pensioners in the banking industry. 30% Family Pension for all, and 100% Dearness Relief neutralization at quarterly intervals for all pensioners.

The problem is genuine and acute because of non availability of Medical Officer at Howrah Zonal Office. A stop gap arrangement has been made possible through our persuasion, and one Doctor is being deputed partially to cater to this need. We are hopeful that the big backlog will get cleared soon.

Pension issues in SBI–Let delay not diminish the expectations:

With each day passing, solutions to pension issues in State Bank of India are getting delayed abnormally with the result that the patience of the retiree pensioners stands awe fully over brimmed, it’s rather on a collapsing point. Lot many messages are reaching this blog as from the retiree pensioners every day manifesting their pains caused to them on account of delay in sorting out the pension related issues. They feel exhausted and frustrated too, but the moot question is what could it be to transpire if they lay down their efforts and hopes. This shall be a disaster. I earnestly appeal to all the retirees not to abandon their patience, nor should they feel disheartened in any manner. They have to remember that whatever are the endeavours made on this count shall not go a waste and are sure to elicit some tangible outcome some day; let us wish that this occurs soonest possible.

 Additional Housing Loan
Sir I was granted additional housing loan of Rs.3,07,000/- in the year 1998. The loan installment was fixed for Rs.2000/- per month and it was being recovered from my salary till the date of my retirement from bank’s services on 31.07.2008. At the time of my retirement, I requested the bank to continue the housing loan account when the loan outstanding was about Rs.3.55 lac.
2. During a period of 53 months (from August,2009 to December,2012) I deposited a sum of Rs.1,10,000/- in my loan account which was more than the recovery from the monthly installment. But in the month of December,2012 when Charbagh, Lucknow branch stopped transaction in my PENSION ACCOUNT No. 2002398033 putting me in great financial and mental stress, I took up the matter with Charbagh branch and Regional Manager R-V Zonal Office, Lucknow who enhanced the loan installment to Rs.4,450/- pm on the plea that as per the housing loan scheme the remaining period is only four years to repay the loan. Accordingly, a sum of Rs.4,450/- is being recovered from 27.12.2012 till date from my above pension account and a sum of Rs.48,950/- has been recovered.
3. Despite the above revised repayment installment of Rs.4,450/- which is being recovered from my pension account, the Charbagh branch surprisingly again noted a lien of Rs.1,00,000/- on 17.12.2013 to my pension account depriving me to withdraw from my pension account. This has put to me in great financial and mental stress.
4. Sir I want to know what was the loan period for the additional housing loan scheme. Was it 20 years? Can a lien may be noted in PENSION ACCOUNT.
Kindly help me.
With regards.
